- This is a typical savory South Asian fresh chutney. Bright with the fresh flavors of cilantro, chilis, lime and mint this chutney is a delicious accompaniment to a rice or roti based meal. It's a lot like Mexican "salsa verde" and makes a great tortilla dip or burrito topping too.
2 cups fresh cilantro/dhania, roughly chopped
3 -4 green chili peppers (for less heat use 1-2 green chili peppers or omit)
1 small green bell pepper/capsicum, seeded, deveined & roughly chopped
1/4 cup onion, roughly chopped
2 TBS lime juice
1 tsp salt
1/4 C mint/pudina leaves (optional)
- Heres what to do-
- 1) Whiz all ingredients in mixie, blender, or food processor to a fine paste. Salt to taste.
Helpful Hints:You can vary the ingredients as you wish. If you don't like mint, leave it out. If you don't want much heat, use less green chilis.
If you find you've made the chutney too hot for your liking add a tablespoon or two of yogurt to bring down the heat.
